Blood in poo and poor breathing - Help!


Urgent advice please.

I've been treating my Paratyphoid rescue bird with Sulfatrim for 11 day's, he's been eating and his poo had formed up but today I noticed he hadn't touched his food so I gave him some chopped nuts which he's eaten. He didn't look too well so I've brought him inside.

Black poo which must be blood, his mouth is open a little and he's coughing now and then.

Is anything I can do before it's too late?

I've been reading that the Sulfatrim can be harsh.

Thanks

Can you get him to a pigeon friendly avian vet? Thank you for helping him.

If you can't get him to a vet, just give supportive care. Keep him warm and stop all the meds. I hope he survives.

dear andrew2007,-are you guessing pmv,or just experience.--blood in stool may be old blood,-if the problem is pmv[virus],the immune system must be enhanced-ie,probotics,-the problem is we donot know what bacterial to fight,any possibility of an avian exotic dvm exam.-poop analysis.--sulfatrim hasnot been effective.-some people try feeding-soft-peas.,ground up bird food/syringed,and electrolyte/water,etc..-coughing could be reaction to sulfatrim,soar crop,etc.-we do like a happy ending when confronted with adversity..--I will pray-it helps.--sincerely james waller
